IUPAT DC6 showcased their skilled trades recruitment campaign by hosting their “First Ever Open House and Job Fair” on Friday March 23, 2018 from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM at their facility in Strongsville Ohio. The event featured live demonstrations by apprentices and contractors working in the construction finishing trades including the opportunity to experience simulated airless spray painting techniques and welding applications. DC6 Instructors, Business Agents, contractors and registered apprentices also answered students’ questions on how to apply and succeed as a DC6 apprentice and union member.

DC6 offers young men and women “earn and learn” opportunities that lead to family sustaining careers in drywall finishing, glazing, glass working, commercial painting, bridge painting, sign & display and wall covering industries.  The attendees also learned about a partnership with Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) that offers college credits and certifications for participating in Union apprenticeship programs.

Vocational students from Max Hayes, R.G. Drage, and Cuyahoga Valley Career Center and other area high schools participated in the event along with many political leaders including Representative Nickie Antonio, Michelle Sheehan candidate for Court of Appeals, Minority Leader of The Senate Kenny Yuko, Strongsville Economic Development Director Brent Painter, Strongsville Mayor Tom Perciak, and Judge Brendan Sheehan. Long-time Union Supporter and friend of DC6 Betty Sutton was also on hand, Ms. Sutton is Richard Cordray’s running mate for Governor of Ohio.

“We’re happy to announce that this is going to be an annual event,” declared IUPAT DC6 Business Manager/Secretary Jim Sherwood. “It was exciting to see the energy and enthusiasm of the students and potential union members who participated in our open house, it was even more exciting to collect several new apprenticeship applications on the spot!”
